Delta variant or B.1.617.2 is a highly transmissible variant of COVID-19. 

The World Health Organization says that the Delta variant has spread to at least 85 countries since it was first identified in India. 

“Delta is the most transmissible of the variants identified so far,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, said recently. 

The virus carries a cluster of mutations, including one known as L452R, that helps it infect human cells more easily.
